Famous quotes containing the word jong:

    No one to blame!... That was why most people led lives they hated, with people they hated.... How wonderful to have someone to blame! How wonderful to live with one’s nemesis! You may be miserable, but you feel forever in the right. You may be fragmented, but you feel absolved of all the blame for it. Take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    Each month
    the blood sheets down
    like good red rain.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    There is a rhythm to the ending of a marriage just like the rhythm of a courtship—only backward. You try to start again but get into blaming over and over. Finally you are both worn out, exhausted, hopeless. Then lawyers are called in to pick clean the corpses. The death has occurred much earlier.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)
